OKLAHOMA CITY —Meet the nation’s senior letter carrier with the U.S. Postal Service.
Johnnie Bell celebrated 70 years of service Friday. Bell has worked in Oklahoma City his entire career. His journey began when he was just 23.
“Thanks so much for this recognition. This is just something I do because I enjoy doing it,” he said.
Bell is humble, a man of few words. When he does speak, everyone listens.
Said coworker Stephanie Fiordelisi: “He just loves everyone, and he has a way of just being magic and just drawing everyone together to where they just all felt like family.”
As humble as Bell is, what he just accomplished is something to brag about. He has shown up for his job, day after day, for 70 years.
“It’s been a great experience to work with him. Seventy years is a blessing,” coworker Willie Taft said.
